Adventure Theatre MTC (ATMTC) educates and inspires new generations of theater artists and audiences with exceptional theatrical experiences. Led by Executive Director Leon Seemann, Artistic Director Chil Kong, and Education Director Margo Brenner Collins, ATMTC has grown from a community-based company into a nationally renowned Academy and professional theater for young audiences.
ATMTC is the result of a 2012 merger between two well-respected community organizations: Adventure Theatre and the Musical Theater Center. Adventure Theatre was founded in 1951 and is the longest-running theatre for children and families in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Musical Theater Center began in 1984 as a performing student ensemble and over the years it became known for high-quality musical theater training. In a non-pandemic year, between its professional theatre productions, Academy classes, summer camps, in-school programming, and community outreach, ATMTC serves approximately 40,000 individuals.
